An authoritative and comprehensive review of the most important clinical issues facing critically ill neurologic and neurosurgical patients. The authors provide pertinent basic, clinical, diagnostic, and management guidelines for all the conditions commonly encountered in the neurocritical care unit, including the management of autonomic disorders that require critical care, postoperative management, and endovascular treatment. The authors also discuss the latest developments in the monitoring of different body systems, emphasizing the management of cardiorespiratory complications and other medical conditions that may threaten the patient's life. Also detailed are the concepts of intracranial physiology and current neuromonitoring techniques, subjects whose understanding is basic to effective management of critically ill neurologic patients. Numerous tables, figures, diagrams, and radiographs simplify and explicate both the diagnostic and therapeutic processes.show more

Review quote

"After review of monitoring and common presentations for neurologic conditions, there is discussion of common neurologic problems seen in the intensive care unit including subarachnoid hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord diseases, status epilepticus, central nervous system infections, and special considerations in perioperative care. Chapters are clearly written and include line drawings and tables. Concluding the book is an outstanding group of appendixes reviewing monitoring calculations and standard assessment scores. A sample nursing flow sheet is included. "-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journalshow more

Back cover copy

In recent years, significant gains have been made in neurocritical care because of improved monitoring techniques, neurosurgical approaches, and therapies for various complex neurologic and neurosurgical conditions. In Critical Care Neurology and Neurosurgery, a panel of world-renowned experts in neurocritical care comprehensively reviews the most important clinical issues facing critically ill neurologic and neurosurgical patients. Beginning with recommendations for the organization of a modern and efficient neurosciences critical care unit, these experts provide pertinent basic, clinical, diagnostic, and management guidelines for all the conditions commonly encountered in the neurocritical care unit, including the management of traumatic brain injury, autonomic disorders, postoperative recuperation, and endovascular treatment. In addition, the authors discuss the latest developments in the monitoring of different body systems, emphasizing the management of cardiorespiratory complications and other medical conditions that may threaten the patient's life. Also detailed are the concepts of intracranial physiology and current neuromonitoring techniques, subjects whose understanding is basic to effective management of critically ill neurologic patients. Numerous tables, figures, diagrams, and radiographs simplify and explicate both the diagnostic and therapeutic processes. Authoritative and comprehensive, Critical Care Neurology and Neurosurgery provides critical care physicians and nurses, neurologists, neuroanesthesiologists, and neurosurgeons easy access to the most up-to-date guidelines for effective care of patients suffering serious and acute diseases of the brain and spinal cord.show more
